Montana Mobile Notaries
Notary publics in Montana can assist you with a variety of tasks, including:
- Verifying Signatures — A notary will verify your identity and certify that you signed the document of your own free will, not under coercion or threat.
- Creating Certified Copies — For some documents, a simple photocopy is not enough; you may need a certified copy. A Montana notary can verify that the copy is a true and accurate representation of the original document.
- Hearing Oaths and Vows — In some cases, you may have to speak your agreement to a contract or list of duties rather than signing a document. A notary can place you under oath and hear you speak your vows for verification.
Montana also has a set of regulations regarding the commissioning of the notaries themselves, including the following:
- Notaries in the state of Montana serve terms of four years.
- At the end of each term, they’ll need to apply to renew their commission.
- Once commissioned, a Montana notary public can operate not just in Montana, but in North Dakota and Wyoming as well.
After confirming your identity and validating your document, the notary will apply an ink stamp to the document. While other states allow embossed seals in place of stamps, the state of Montana allows ink stamps only.
The notary will also document the transaction in their official ledger for recording purposes. You’ll need to sign this as well, and then you’re all set!

Some Common Montana Notarization Questions
- Do I need to appear before the notary personally in Montana?
Yes, the will's signer is required by law to personally appear before the notary throughout the notarization process. However, the law is flexible enough to allow remote notarization in unavoidable situations. So, you can present yourself before the notary either physically or digitally. You’ll need two-way, real-time audio and video communication if you want your documents notarized remotely.
- What proof documents do I have to present for a mobile notary public in Montana?
If the notary does not know you personally, they will require a signed government-issued ID with your photograph. Examples include any state ID, a driving permit, a passport, student ID, or military identification. Identification methods such as credit cards, bank cards, and government-issued IDs without pictures (such as Medicare and Social Security cards) are insufficient to serve as primary identifiers. As a result, you might need to present more than one form of identification to prove your identity.
- Is remote online notarization legal in Montana?
Yes, Montana is another state that accepts remote internet notarization (RON) if the subject of the notarization resides inside Montana’s boundaries. Typically, there is a fee associated with these services.
- What is a notarial certificate and how do I get one in Montana?
The notarial certificate is finished at the same time as the notarial act. It contains the following details:
Venue: The county and state where the notarization was performed.
Statement of Particulars: A declaration that specifies the kind of notarial act, the date, and the signer.
Notary’s Official Signature and Seal: The certificate will be endorsed with the notary's wet or electronic signature.
When a document is notarized, a notary public confirms that the signature on it is that of the signer. Notaries attest to the legitimacy of signatures and issue a notarial certificate at the end of the verification process.
